Since playing around with the GFC500 autopilot, I have become enamored with it. I really want that G1000-like experience in my old Mooney. So I wrote Garmin asking why it still wasn’t certified in anything pre-J.
I am reaching out to you regarding some info that you submitted via the Garmin autopilot website.
We will be looking for a Mooney M20F / G to conduct installation, certification and flight testing on in 2020. We would need the aircraft for around 6 months starting in mid-January.
We show that you currently have a GTN 650 or 750 installed along with at least one G5 instrument. These are pre-requisites for our program.
If you are interested in this program, feel free to email me back and provide some pictures of your aircraft. I am particularly interested in your panel / radio stack / left and right yokes.
If we end up needing it, we might need some pictures looking aft down the tail as well.
Thanks for showing interest!
Would you do it?
